Fun Tip - Consider the special effect of “rim sugar” for that extra special drink flair. You can make your own rim sugar as follows:
Frost the rims of the glasses by brushing them with lemon juice and then dipping them in sugar. Let the rims dry until ready to serve. You can also use "salt" instead of sugar.
Or, purchase ready-made rim sugar, and your guests will be delighted!
To make your kid's (non-alcoholic) drinks more fun, add rim sugar to their drinks too!
Rim sugar is available in many fun colours. You can also purchase a special "glass rimmer".
These items can be ordered online at *Amazon.com, and, in most cases delivered right to your door!
